Triduum comes from two Latin words (tres and dies) which means a space of three days. On all high festival days the Church counts a day in the same way as the Jews count days and festivals; that is from sundown to sundown. Thus, the triduum consists of three 24 hour periods. The Triduum is the Church’s retreat time. These are special days in which we annually celebrate Jesus’ “transitus,” his passing from suffering and death to eternal, resurrected glory. When we celebrate these liturgies, we remember the truth of Jesus and the truth of our discipleship.

Remember to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life: Consider a church vocation. Pray. Care. Listen. Nurture. Heal. Educate. Shelter. Reconcile. Labor. Liberate. Your choice can make a difference.

Loving God, you call all who believe in you to grow perfect in love by following in the footsteps of Christ, your Son. Call from among us more men and women who will serve you as priests, deacons, and religious. By their way of life, may they be faithful signs of your Kingdom for the Church and the whole world. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
